While I was at the hospital reclining under warm blankets, Scott was at home busting his keister. Walter brought over the most beautiful solid maple flooring (milled that day after drying and acclimitizing for a very long time) on Thursday (I think – dates are foggy). Saturday Scott had Nate and Chris join him for a flooring party. Pauline made chili, Joe made split pea soup, then everyone got the hell out of the way.
I can’t report with any detail on the project since I was at hospital, so here are some photos. They put on 3 coats of varnish today – very very little odor – and will continue to lay down coats until the varnish is gone.
Needless to say, it is far far more gorgeous in real life.
